Description

A tale of Moomin Valley sees Toffle driven from his home by the frightening noises of the forest. Too shy, at first, to approach the many colourful Moomin characters he passes along the way, he gains confidence by discovering a scared and lonely Miffle who needs his help. Toffle's quest to save Miffle from the dreadful Groke is an inspiring tale that every child (and many adults) are sure to identify with. In Scandinavia, this story by Tove Jansson is even more popular than her Moomin books; in over 40 years since it was published it has never once been out of print.show more

About Tove Jansson

Sophie Hannah, one of England's most renowned and popular rhyming poets, has written a sensitive and gloriously entertaining adaptation of the text - the perfect match for Jansson's quirky illustrations. This is one of the most appealing children's books this decade.show more

Review quote

"In a children's book there must be a path where the author stands still and the child walks on. A threat or a wonder that is never explained. A face that never shows itself entire." (Tove Jansson)show more
